Amazing way for T-mobile customers to save some cash.

I bought a Samsung Galaxy S3 from T-mobile full price. (Just don't trust Craigslist) But take that phone to Straight talk. In the store Straight talk sells flip phones that run on Verizon and Android phones that run on Sprint. (At least in my area, Indiana.) But if you get on Straight talk's site you can pay $15 for a T-mobile SIM card that supports their 4g, you now have a 4g t-mobile phone running with a 4g t-mobile sim running on T-mobile's network. (Since it is a T-mo phone running on a T-mo network, there is no reason to unlock it either.)

Now I pay $45 a month for unlimited Talk and text and data (The data is limited to 2gb, which most places are now but the T-mo prepaid plan that limits you to 2gb is $60 a month.) You would think ...

Good luck finding coverage with that network. Take a road trip and mark how many spots have no coverage or if they do are serviced by painfully slow, outdated EDGE. I travel a lot and know first hand how inadequate their network is. You say you work for AT&T, well guess what? You're going to find yourself roaming on their network a lot. And they make you roam on EDGE. Enjoy the slow data speed with that bargain phone you just bought!

Buddy. WAKE UP. Not all people are alike. Even the Straight talk speeds are fine in many areas. Not everyone lives in remote timbucktoo like you and needs the speed up there. If he is happy with the service, and gets the high speeds he needs where he lives and travels, then its the perfect plan for him. And roaming on EDGE is fine for most people who don't roam that much.
